Hope Solo Arrested for Domestic Assault

Hope Solo Arrested for Domestic Assault

Kirkland, Washington’s police department arrested Hope Solo Saturday on domestic violence charges. The two-time Olympic gold medalist is scheduled to appear before a judge in Kirkland Municipal Court on Monday.

The arrest stemmed from a 911 call made regarding the soccer the goalie’s behavior at a family gathering. The police report details Solo “hitting people,” including her sister and 17-year-old nephew. The cops noted marks on several party goers and gleaned Solo’s responsibility from interviews. The police arrested an intoxicated Solo at about 1 a.m. Saturday morning. 

“There was a big party going on at her house,” Lt. Mike Murray told the Seattle Times. “It was an out-of-control situation.”

Solo’s lawyer denies the charges. 

The 32-year-old goalie has enjoyed endorsement deals with Nike, Western Union, Gatorade, EA Sports, and other massive brands. Sports Illustrated, TV Guide, Vogue, and Newsweek have featured her on their covers. She appeared on Dancing with the Stars in 2011. She currently plays for the Seattle Reign FC. “We are aware of the situation regarding Hope Solo and are currently gathering information,” the women’s professional team explained in a statement. “We have no further comments at this time.”
